What is a water ionizer?

Wikipedia: A water ionizer is an appliance that ionizes water.

Where are water ionizers usually located?

Above counter top water ionizer models are located adjacent sink on counter top. Under counter water ionizer models are located under sink in cabinet.

Where did water ionizers originate?

Water ionizers were first produced in the orient and have been used there for over 40 years. Alkaline water produced from home water ionizers has been available in the U.S since the 1990's. Most research performed on the benefits of alkaline water has been conducted in Japan and South Korea. Very few studies are available in the U.S. Many advocates of alkaline water ionizers believe such ailments as arthritis, high blood pressure, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, just to name a few are significantly lowered, helped or prevented through the use of water ionizers.

Alkaline Water and Water Ionizer benefits

Water Filtration / Water Purification

Contaminants Gone!
The Tyent line of water ionizers has the largest physical filters in the industry. They remove most harmful chemicals such as chlorine, fluoride, volatile organic compounds and harmful metals and minerals. Filters contained in the water ionizers filter tap water up to 99.9 % purity. Tyent’s water ionizers dual filtration system is above the industry standard with "ultra" filtration at 0.1 microns.

Alkaline PH Water

PH: Just about everything we eat and drink is acidic, including bottled water. Maintaining proper alkalinity is essential for life, health and vitality. Utilizing water ionizers in raising PH levels in water through the ionization process helps counteract and neutralize the acid condition in our bodies. The human body tends to be acidic because our diet is comprised of cooked foods, pasteurized or otherwise processed foods. Acidity in the body is the root cause of many ailments. Before alkaline water, the only way to combat acidity was to eat high alkaline foods like raw fruits and vegetables. Many find this type of diet to be difficult, if not impossible to achieve. Since our body is about 80% water, consuming alkaline water is a much simpler way to achieve an ideal pH balance in the body.


Our Water Ionizers give us energy by providing our bodies with lots of oxygen carried by the water through the ionization process. Water ionization produces Hydroxyl ions. These are oxygen molecules with an extra electron attached to them. Hydroxyl ions scavenge for free radicals, which are unstable oxygen molecules that can cause us damage. When a hydroxyl antioxidant and free radical cancel each other, the result is a body with more oxygen and therefore potentially more mental alertness and more energy. Oxygen is one of the most exhausted nutrients in our body because of our diet and the Earth's oxygendepleted environment today. Oxygen carries away acid waste from body tissue. Oxygen is vital to human health, and is our most important nutrient. A tall glass of strong, ionized alkaline water first thing in the morning is a great way to start your day.

Super Hydration

Our high quality water ionizers produce ionized water up to six times more hydrating than conventional water and can penetrate cells much more easily. Ionized Water is fundamentally different from conventional water. That is, the size and shape of the water molecule cluster is reduced in size and changed to a hexagonal shape, which allows the water cluster to be absorbed quickly and easily. Drinking more ionized alkaline water can improve one’s health and quality of life. Being hydrated improves mental focus, will boost your energy levels quickly and can help in weight loss, by feeling more full you will reduce excess meals and snacks. Drinking more ionized alkaline water guards against potential health problems. Our bodies naturally become more dehydrated as we age, which means that we need to drink even more water to keep us hydrated and guard against health issues that are common among older adults. (Constipation and joint problems are included in this category.) If you're a regular gym goer or runner, you know how important your hydration levels are.

Powerful antioxidant

Water ionizers neutralize free radicals helping to reduce aging, disease and deterioration. Imagine having the ability to take normal tap water and give it a special charge that can neutralize free radicals and give you the benefits mentioned above. Alkaline ionized water has a negative charge called oxidation reduction potential (-ORP).The ORP properties of alkaline water are known by many as simply "antioxidants". Normal body functions cause high or rising oxidation in the body, which is not good. To fight against the oxidation, the negative ORP charge in alkaline water literally hinders the oxidation process by counteracting any rising oxidation effect. Ionized Water from our water ionizers essentially rejuvenate us.

Fresh squeezed orange juice has a negative ORP of -250. Our water ionizers can exceed this level. We can drink as much Ionized Water as we wish to in a day. Plus, unlike orange juice, ionized alkaline water has no calories. A glass of alkaline water brings us as close as we can ever hope to get to a Fountain of Youth, as incredible as that may sound!

Depending on Source Water
Tap water = about +600 ORP = Aging, Rusting & Decomposing
Bottled Water = Tap water = about +500 ORP = Aging, Rustin & Decomposing
Tyent Ionized Water = about -250 ORP = Rust Free & Anti-Aging


Toxic acidic wastes sit in the cells for long periods of time waiting for elimination. Electrolysis inside the water ionizer unit not only charges the reduced water with electrons. Alkaline water ionizers also reduce the size of water molecule clusters. As the small water molecule clusters hydrate the tissue and fill them with water they push out all the things that don't belong in the tissue, which are commonly referred to as toxins.

Minerals that are ionized are more bio-available

The body can absorb ionized minerals much more efficiently and can therefor make use of them where they are needed throughout the body. Minerals are some of the most important nutrients the body needs, yet mineral deficiency is common. Drinking Ionized Alkaline Water is an efficient and effective way for the body to get its minerals. You will find that our water ionizers are the most popular and respected in the industry.

Acidic Water produced from water ionizers

Low PH or acid water can also be produced during water ionization. Here are just a handful of benefits of using our alkaline water ionizers:

  • Washing fruits and vegetables helps remove chemicals and pesticides. This greatly improves their taste and quality.
  • Cooking
  • Face wash, Shampooing
  • Brushing teeth, gargling
  • Cuts, bruises, sunburn
  • Watering plants
  • Cleaning
  • Reduced or elimination of acne
  • Effective rinse for baby bottles and pacifiers
  • Improved health and texture of gums
  • Relief from and elimination of diaper rash

Weighing costs and benefits of a water ionizer

Many people who are interested in buying a water ionizer for the first time are impressed by the health benefits from alkaline water ionizers but are hesitant once they learn about the costs of a new unit. We at Ionized Water Company know that buying a new water ionizer is a serious investment in your—and your family's—health, but we also know that the size of that investment can be a cost you're not sure about absorbing.

A Tyent alkaline water ionizer can cost more than some (not all) reverse-osmosis systems do, but we also think it's difficult to put a price on the health benefits of alkaline ionized water relative to the "dead water" that you'll get from a reverseosmosis system. When you compare alkaline water to reverse-osmosis water, you'll discover that Tyent water adds many more beneficial antioxidants and nutrients to your diet than reverse-osmosis, because reverse-osmosis takes all those healthy materials out—leaving you with clean water that's void of the good things you actually do want your family to drink.

Over time, buying bottled water becomes pricier than investing in a water ionizer. Think about it: Every time you buy a new box of bottled water, that's $10 more that you could've invested in a lifetime-lasting, warranty-guaranteed Tyent water ionizer machine. Plus, water stored in plastic has the potential for plastic chemicals to leech onto your water and creep into your diet. On average, Tyent alkaline water costs about 6 cents a bottle. It's a lot more cost-effective when you look at it that way!

Water Ionizer Comparisons

Over time we have compared alkaline water ionizer machines and their test results to determine the best water ionizers produced. Although we could have chosen many brands of alkaline water ionizers to sell we did not. Out of all the alkaline water machines, we've selected only the best to represent on our site. Not the second and third best for you and your family but the very best. Take a look at "Why Tyent".
